Sample recipe from Small dishes…: Leek quiche

I sometimes order quiche when I want a light meal in a café, but the closest I have come to making one is a baked omelet, which is similar but crustless.

Servings: 6.
Time: 90 minutes.

175 g margarine
350 ml flour
2 tbs cold water

Mix margarine, flour and water into a smooth dough. Refrigerate for 1 hour at least.

About 800 g (5-6) leeks
100 g grated cheese
100 g smoked bacon
1 egg
100 ml cream
Salt and pepper

Wash and trim the leeks and cut into approximately 3 cm long pieces. Cook in lightly salted water for 5-6 minutes. Drain well.

Roll out the dough and line an ungreased pie dish with it. Sprinkle with about half the grated cheese and top with the leeks. Chop the bacon and sprinkle it on top of the leeks.

Whisk together egg and cream and add salt and pepper to taste. Pour over the pie filling and bake at 200°C for about 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Serve hot.

Does anyone else think that one egg seems like one or two eggs too little?
